JACK: A fit, smart and handsome dad. Very much a family man. He is Mel Gibson from Ransom meets Brad Pitt. Maybe the best way to look at Jack would be Jack, (Mathew Fox,) from Lost (Or a modern day Harrison Ford from Raiders of the Lost ark.)
TARIQ: 19 years old, A VERY well educated young man from Jordan who has spent his formative school years in the British school system and speaks English with an impeccable English accent. He is a teenage Sayyid (Naveen Andrews) from Lost.
Along with the 2 principal roles still casting, there are many available roles for background extras on the project.
Extras for this project will be hired locally from the Detroit area. Sorry, no travel expenses will be covered, so only apply if you live in the Detroit area or within close driving distance.
Extras will be needed for a movie shooting in the Detroit area beginning on February 20th!
The film is set in Egypt, so they will mostly need people who are, or at least look, Middle Eastern.
This is an ultra low budget film, but they will be paying extras about $50/day.
More details to come in the next few days.
The location is expected to be Crossroads Village in Flint, MI.
